Ditmars Gyro Place definitely does things right. As far as rotating meats go, they take no chances, with three different kinds spinning on their spits. The cubes of chicken in the souvlaki sandwich were moist without being chewy, and one could bite through them without wrestling with the pita and making a mess. The combination gyro, ordered at the suggestion of the waiter when we couldn't decide between lamb and beef, was made moist not by tzatziki but by slow, careful meat roasting. Topping it all off, $3 bottles of Mythos, a bargain for the not-bad Greek lager.

The place has the ambiance of a locker room, though: Like many of Astoria's gyro joints, it's not meant for sitting and relaxing. It's meant for damn fine lamb, and that you'll get.

Being new to the area i was psyched to find this place. Service is fast and expensive and the food is really good. They're a little skimpy on the Taziki, so ask for extra. The outdoor seating is really nice if you can get a spot!

Halal Meat has this place beat by a long shot. Thats sad too because I had high expectations for this place but the service here turned me off so badly that I don't think I'll be back anytime soon.
